I found out how to turn capture on in Alsamixer (not Alsamixergui!), but it
made no difference.
So I went back to kmix. Capture was on, but set at zero (automatically). So
I fiddled some more. Turning on pcm worked. \o/ \o/ I am listening to Haydn
as I type. :-))
Just before that I had turned on surroundsound, which may also have had a
bearing, tho' it didn't solve it.
Hope that this will also help you, Helen and Christian. Tho' I doubt it. If
I didn't know better, I would think that occasionally one's computer gets a
roguish gleam in its eye, and dreams up a unique variant of a problem,
needing a unique solution. :-(
And thanks, Jordi for all your help. In addition to the information that you
gave me, I think that I needed a stimulus to make me persevere.
